Pinterest and Blogworld are so inspiring! Everyone is so creative, lots of eye candy out there. Recently I fell in love with a heart that was crafted from beads. I had some beads on hand including jute and I thought, why not give it a try. Let’s play with some beads!
My first project was so simple. I strung up some beads and created this fun embellishment for a candle I used in a centerpiece.
The next craft involved using a wire, beads and spray paint. First I strung the beads on some jute, then spray painted them white. After they completely dried I switched them over to a wire which I started bending into the shape of a heart. After securing the beads on the wire I bent and shaped it a bit more, I found it to be easier to work with at that point. Then I took a sanding pad and sanded the beads to reveal some of their natural look.
Here you see the finished product… it has a bit of a Scandinavian look to it. My home is anything but Scandinavian, I like too many styles out there …what ever speaks to my heart…that I like. Many times it’s a touch of this and a touch of that. For now, I like this heart on my sideboard leaning against a white pitcher…or tied to the pitcher I should say.
That was fun! I hope next time my grands will join me and teach me to become a better crafter!
